We got Mwita Mataro, Silvius Sonvilla, Berni MelchArt and Philipp Jungwirth from aspiring young Vienna band At Pavillon to answer our prying questions this time ahead of their support slot with the Eclectic Moniker in WUK on the 12th of November. They told us about their bad habits, plans for the future, and how they hope to one day be able to grow beards…
Beer or spritzer? Mwita, Silvius, Berni, Philipp: Beer
A bad habit of yours is…… M: Stuttering. S: impossibly chaotic at times. P: getting pissed very fast. B: I really love biting my fingernails

P: Some album of Pendulum
B: Definitely one of The Beatles albums. The harder question is which one…
(SIM – We will go with Revolver)
Your celebrity crush is……… M: Nami (One Piece). S: Sabine Timoteo. P: Megan Fox before her operation (SIM- that could be a number of different versions of Megan Fox. She is like an Apple iPhone, a new and “better” version comes out every year) , B: hehe Mila Kunis or Reese Witherspoon
If you were stuck on an island, which celebrity, which book, which film and which album would you HATE to have with you?
M: Nicki Minaj, Der Prozess (Kafka), The Hottie and The Nottie (with Paris Hilton…), Pink Friday (Nicki Minaj)

B: Dieter Bohlen, the book for my driving license, Swimming Pool.. an erotic film with Romy Schneider, Tokio Hotel, but I have no idea what their albums’ names are) (SIM – that makes us very proud)
Mustache or beard? M: beard. If i´ll ever have one… S: Totally. P: Beard B: Beard.. I just need a little bit more time and i will have one =D (hopefully)
Who would win this arm wrestle: Dirk Stermann or Christoph Grissemann? M: Stermann. S: Naaah. Grissemann. P: Grissemann. B: I guess they would interrupt each other so often, before the match could even start
4 albums you couldn’t live without…

S: Yes, why not.
P: ukf compilation, playing the Angel (Depeche Mode), Dynamite ( Jamiroquai), Demon Days (Gorillaz)

Aspirin or Alka Selzer (to cure a hangover) MP: Aspirin. S: Water should do it. B: I don’t like to take medicine especially if I can handle it without. But a biiiiiiig bottle of coffee, a dark room and silence is my method.
Your guilty pleasure (musically) is…
M: Tokio Hotel. But don´t tell anyone…
S: Someone New by Eskobar ft Heather Nova.
P: don’t know… (SIM- We are going to use our journalistic freedom and assume that “don’t know” can only mean something very bad, like Shania Twain….)
B: Lucilectric’s “Weil ich ein Mädchen bin” or “Die Prinzen”
Ottakringer or Gösser? MSP: Ottakringer. B: Gösser but only because Ottakringer is one of the worst beers

P: Stadium Arcadium – Red Hot Chili Peppers
B: A Compilation of the Austrian band EAV or a compilation of The Beatles
Bath or shower? MP: Shower. S: Bath. B: Shower. It’s faster, it’s less water for a better environment, and its a massage for your shoulders.
Mcd or burger king? M: I recently discovered Burger King for myself. S: McDonalds of course. P: None of them. B: I try to avoid junk food. But it’s very good when you are drunk and waiting for your nightline, so I’ll go for Mcd.
Your favourite piece of clothing is…… M: Shoes. S: Socks. P: Hat. B: I like my fawn coat.
What can we expect from At Pavillon in 2014? What is in the pipeline? Do have any other gigs or a tour planned?

In terms of making music it is a new beginning for us and we are eagerly working on a new, redefined sound. We are planning to release an EP in 2014. On the 12th of November we are supporting the awesome danish band The Eclectic Moniker in the Wiener WUK.
